Studio One - Afrikan Blood
Black Friday vinyl release
Clement Dodd, the founder of the iconic Studio One label, was a fierce
proponent of Marcus Garvey’s message of self-reliance that he had heard
in his youth. Over the years he recorded and produced many songs that
expressed the yearnings and feelings of his fellow Jamaicans.
Afrikan Blood is a timely release that captures some of the roots reggae songs
that speak to the injustices that still exist today. Many of the songs on Afrikan
Blood are previously unreleased or unreleased stereo mixes by foundation artists
like Alton Ellis, The Gaylads, The Wailing Souls and Freddie McGregor.
